Roma will be without Miralem Pjanic for tonight’s Serie A game against Sampdoria, reports Sky Sport Italia.
The Bosnian was included in the 22-man squad by Zdenek Zeman, but he’s yet to fully recover from muscle fatigue.
The midfielder will thus not be available for the Stadio Olimpico encounter. Daniele De Rossi, back from injury, is expected to now start alongside Panagiotis Tachtsidis and Alessandro Florenzi in the Czech's 4-3-3.
